$25 whole million? WOW? that's huge!!! Oh wait, how much is iRobot worth again?
Just one in a growing list of my aforementioned technophilanthropist, company list investing in the future...you of course, again can't see anything in context whatsoever. However, that money is basically seed money for multiple companies for developing non-industrialized robots, it's quite a shot in the arm to the industry...but not the only one.
